Jewish Book Council's annual literary magazine, Paper Brigade, is named in honor of the group of writers and intellectuals in the Vilna Ghetto who rescued thousands of Jewish books and documents from destruction by the Nazis. The 2017 issue provides a 200-page snapshot of the Jewish literary landscape in America and abroad.
The 2017/5777 issue features . . .
An interview with Jonathan Safran Foer
An exploration of Israeli crime fiction
Etgar Keret and Ann Goldstein on translation
A history of Yiddish pulp fiction
Art Spiegelman and Maira Kalman on the first Jewish books they fell in love with
Beautiful photography and excerpts from forthcoming novels
. . . and more!
"A mix of literary criticism, author interviews, excerpts from upcoming books, poetry, photography, and more, the journal is a neat package of chicken soup for the literary Jewish soul."
"Visually, the publication is luscious..."
"The 2017 issue just came out, and it’s so incredible."
